Welcome to un-official blog of champagne-gh-mumm
At the beginning of 19th century the Mumm family; recognising the business of exceptional sparkling vine in France and keeping inconsideration the friendly terms of both countries, Germany and France, took the bold decision and created another Branch of the company in the Remis; the world centre of the champagne production. With the partnership of French local G. Heuser the new entity G.H Mumm was formed with quality their watchword and motto for ‘Only the Best’.
Driven by this motto of his, G.H Mumm gave birth to the iconic that changed the destiny of champagne company. To pay a tribute to his most prestige customers, he ornamented each bottle’s neck with a red silk ribbon. The red silk ribbon symbolises the highest of the honours of French, The Grand Cordon. This decision apart from its visual strength as Cordon Rouge also established G.H Mumm Cordon Rouge as ambassador of Champagne spirit. It had such a great affect that Cordon Rouge became the house symbol of G.H. Mumm Champagne.
G.H Mumm has its own fermentation research laboratories to offer consistently the highest quality champagne under well developed expertise. The vine gardens for mumm champagne have more than 77 varieties of grapes to pick from. The distinctiveness in the final blend reflects preponderance of the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay’s strong presence for elegance and finesse it posses and a hint of Pinot Meunier to provide fruitiness, liveliness and on the contraire rusty feeling, and to finalise the deal and give it the classic touch it is known for, the vine is mixed with 30% of old cellar wine and left for ageing.
In the cellars of the G.H Mumm the still wine hidden in depths becomes Champagne. To make it sparkling it is kept at the constant temperature of 11 degree Celsius, over month where bubbles from gradually. With the increase in bubbles the pressure inside the bottle increase up to 6 bars and the alcohol content up to 12%. The perfect maturity of mumm brut champagne is created in the cellar over many months with an increase in aroma and richness in taste.
The integral part played in company’s champagne is the liqueur they use, it is half as drier than most of the liqueur used in brut champagne. The shapes of bottles also give the wine a consistently ravishing finish, with its remarkable mouth length making space for constant fermentation and bubbles to form at and rise so that rich and lively foam is produced when the Mumm champagne is opened. The bottles are available from 75cl to 15 litters all with same science.
